The intention of this concentration is to allow students not majoring in business analytics and information technology (BAIT) to add a field of secondary expertise to their transcripts, complementing their major area of study, without having to take the full complement of seven extra courses required to double-major in BAIT. Such students are advised to select one of the two concentrations (business analytics [BA] or management information systems [MIS]); selecting both concentrations requires six additional courses, in which case it is recommended that the student take one further course and thus qualify for a major or double major in BAIT.

You cannot 'double count' or
overlap any courses between RBS-NB majors and RBS-NB concentrations. All
concentration courses must be fulfilled by courses not required by an RBS-NB
major. Degree Navigator will not remove the double counted courses and it is
the student's responsibility to monitor this manually.
